Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What's in-between

Tomorrow I get to host a radio show all about the 'in-between' parts of a Grateful Dead show.

I'll be airing nothing but those instrumental segments either in-between two songs or inside of a longer tune where no evident song theme exists. Visit the link above for a sample of what I mean.

Much of the material is from earlier years, but not all.

Audio is now archived there, but only for 2 weeks (thanks DMCA).

Cool idea, I've thought of it, but never got around to compiling it.

How about the transition between Scarlet and Fire on 11-1-79 with Brent's FUNKY keys? There is a good few minutes in there where they are no longer in Scarlet and not yet in Fire, a true unique transition jam.

How interesting. I'm actually working on a paper for the annual meeting of the Canadian branch of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) next weekend in Quebec City on, partly, that very topic. I'm also connecting the development of the improvisational connection of pre-existing songs in the mid-to-late '60s to the emergence around the same time ('68-69) of beat-matching by DJs, which, in many ways, served the same purpose: to keep the energy flowing and thereby keep people on their feet. I'll certainly listen.

I'll definitely post it at some point and hopefully publish it somewhere in fact. But since it'll be part of my dissertation it might be a while till it's ready to share.

the "jam" between Bertha and China Doll is one of a kind, especially in the later years.

It has its own theme but not from any song I know.

Mooding.
Another one of those things that made the Grateful Dead the greatest rock band ever was those little tuning segments.
I have some trouble recalling those moments now especially because it is now History not live on the spot anymore but I know for sure there where shows when the buildup to a tune would just blow my mind. and everyone is trying to name that tune.
Sometimes I could name a tune in just a few notes but there were times when I was like I just have no idea what this is.
And I am not talking break-outs, covers or tunes with similar intro's like trying to decide if it's 'High Time' or 'To Lay Me Down'
So that is a very cool idea for a program. 'Infrared Roses' was sweet but if I get what you are saying you are not looking at space segments you are looking at noodling segments. (Not even jams per say) but like when the Dead were just bending notes and even tossing around ideas yet still playing and interacting musically with each other between tunes.
Some of the studio outtakes are good for that but it is not the same as the live vibe and electricity at an actual show.

Thanks c-freedom. Not tunings, though I've wanted to assemble a collection of those too and have a little one going.

And no space segments from 1980s forward either. I suppose 'noodling' would be the best way to describe most of it, but there are Spanish, Mind Left Body, Tiger, Tighten Up and other named jams in my library for this.

LIA has a great post about the Dead's early thematic jams, extensively hyperlinked.

Mooding;
This was great.( I really like the instrumental Estimated sound check.)
In general good music for writing.(sometimes lyrics make me lose my train of thought.)
Keep up the labor of love and good work.

Thanks, I really appreciate the feedback. There will be another show exactly like this one as I wasn't able to play even half of what I produced.

The DJ who follows me, a VERY long-time jazz host (25+ years) and not a head, says that he's been blown away by the specials I've produced in the last couple of years (GD covering black artists, the Jerry Covers Project (ongoing) and this one.

He came into the studio and said that this was some of the coolest stuff he's heard in a long time. He said that he'd love to listen to this stuff driving around in his car, so I gave him all of the CDs.

Nice picks for the show. I look forward to the next - the membership drive really cut into the playing time on this one!

A late era and a mid era suggestion.

It is short but the end-ish part of this VOC might fit. Also, the back half of the "jam" is interesting.

The "jam of various themes".

Neat project. Good luck!

Thanks Micah. I checked out the end of Victim and there's not enough time without the song theme there for me to include it. But since you mentioned Victim, maybe I'll relisten to the craziness at the end of the 12-31-89 version. I also happened to be 3rd 'row' center for that entire second set and even almost got hit by the float in all the mayhem.

>not enough time

I thought it might be too short. Bumper music? ;-)

The spring of '90 had many interesting jams post Terrapin- not just 3-24 (which is probably too explicit a statement of theme for your project).

This I ought to have included in my first post. The Jam > https://archive.org/details/gd1990-07-06.sbd.zei.2255.shnf

What you need to do is take a step back
and then another step back. Start from the back and work from the front...
